Questar Fueling Company, a subsidiary of Questar Corporation (NYSE:STR) , opens its newest compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station today at 5174 West 2400 South, West Valley City, Utah. The public-access station will provide fast-fill CNG fueling for Swift Transportation and other fleet operators with medium- and heavy-duty trucks.

“This Questar Fueling CNG station is slightly different from Questar Gas’s 26 CNG stations located throughout Utah,” said Craig Wagstaff, president of Questar Fueling and Questar Gas. “It’s equipped with high-speed, high-volume CNG fueling for the medium- and heavy-duty truck market, and is one of seven stations we’ve built nationally for companies like Swift Transportation, Central Freight Lines, Dart Transit, Frito-Lay and other fleet operators running their vehicles on clean-burning natural gas.”

Questar Fueling also owns and operates four CNG stations in Texas and two in Kansas. The company plans to open a dozen other stations along major U.S. transportation corridors in Arizona, Nevada, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois and Georgia. Like all Questar Fueling CNG stations, the West Valley station will be open to members of the general public who drive natural gas-powered vehicles. The price for CNG is currently about $2 per equivalent gallon compared to about $2.75 per gallon for diesel fuel.

There are over 15 million natural gas vehicles on the road worldwide – but only 140,000 are in the United States. Now that the U.S. has become the world’s largest natural gas producer, the transportation industry is accelerating its integration of natural gas-powered trucks.
